Chalkboard Electronics toucscreens

Hi all, Forgive me if this is in the wrong section - please feel free to move it if need be! I am looking into finally buying a screen from Chalk-Elec (the 14" one to be precise) and am a little unsure on whether I will actually receive my screen or not since I've read here and there that people hav...

Using Sensors with Motors

Here I have been working on two pieces of python code (essentially to build a small robot) one piece controls the sensors and calculates the distance between an object and the ultrasonic sensor. Keep in mind the sensors are at the front and back of the robot. The other piece of code I have written c...

Re: Power and GPIO pins

as far as I know, the layout files have not been released to the public so it is impossible to know how much current the traces can carry and how the GND pin is connected. just looking at the circuit board, it appears that the traces are fairly thin so I would think that you safely can run 1 Ampere...

Re: Power and GPIO pins

I don't think the 5V supply is regulated on the Pi so the voltage will be whatever is supplied by the power supply. I have a memory that the tracks can take an amp or so (seems a bit low but I wouldn't want to experiment). Thanks for the reply. I heard the ground can take a fair bit but I'm not so ...

Power and GPIO pins

Hello all, I recently bought the Raspberry Pi and I have a few questions about the GPIO pins and power pins in general. 1. Is the voltage output TRULY 5 volts from the 5v pins? Forgive me if this is a stupid question. I hear it can vary? 2. What is the MAX current and voltage that can go back throug...
